Discussion Interested in Government Info?

by Rebecca Troy-Horton on Tue, Apr 14, 2009 at 10:49 pm

Hello,

My name is Rebecca Blakeley and I'm glad someone started this group! I am definately a Social Media maven, so I had to join. ;-)

Hello,

My name is Rebecca Blakeley and I'm glad someone started this group! I am definately a Social Media maven, so I had to join. ;-)

I started a Government Information Interest Group at ALA Connect. All kinds of librarians are welcome! Public, School, Special, Academic, etc.! It is pretty bare bones right now and I could use some help in developing it and making it grow. It is a great way to connect with all types of librarians who share an interest in government information, but may or may not be part of a depository library or a member of GODORT. It is another way to provide outreach and educate our fellow librarians about the world of government information!

The group is for those interested in government information (federal, state, local, and international). Various topics of interest include depository libraries, government information collections, open access, transparency, and preservation of government information, E-government, Government 2.0, and using social networks to collect and disseminate government information (”Gov Docs 2.0″) and more!

If you could spread the word, I would really appreciate it!

Hi, glad to join this group. I'm really into social media and technologies and its applicability to government information and government documents librarianship. Anyone else here interested in that too?

Discussion Hello

by Alison Miller on Tue, Mar 17, 2009 at 05:55 pm

Hello~  I just wanted to introduce myself and express an interest in this community.  I'd be interested in sharing information and ideas on best/most useful blogs/wikis/media.  I have a blog and wiki - I use wordpress and PBwiki, as they are free and for personal use.  What do others use and follow?  I also blog for the IPL and will soon start blogging for ALA CLS and SLA IT.  I look forward to connecting.  Cheers~ Alison Miller, Researcher in Distance Education, The Internet Public Library.

Discussion Is anyone interested in playing an unofficial game of "Cruel 2 B Kind" at Annual?

by Jenny Levine (staff) on Wed, Apr 8, 2009 at 02:17 pm

We'd have to figure out the logistics (when, where, etc.), but if there's enough interest, I think it would be a blast to do this. Volunteers to help organize are especially welcome! :)

Learn more about the game Cruel 2 B Kind.
